    July 10th it is. I'll be ready with some questions to spark the conversation.

    I'm not officially adding my name to the list (hesitant to commit just now), but certainly will be watching from the sidelines and adding in a post or two, if I can coordinate it.

    This is really a minority view here, but I don't read...

    I used to be a bookworm, but have all sorts of excuses now, which may or may not explain the sudden resistance to those lovable old moldy paperbacks: "School poisoned me" and "I'm too restless to sit still for that long."

    In the past I've enjoyed books in which characters have to make hard, ethical choices. I'm not crazy about moralism. Or virtue. A book which is inspiring because of a do-gooder would not be right for me. I appreciate character flaws, in both living and fictional people. Sarah seems like something up my alley. Or science fiction. Or satire.

    So, rather than asking you all to accommodate my not-so-new (7 years of not really reading) stubborness with books, I'll sit here and listen and wait to be motivated again, or not. Just wanted y'all to know that I was listening in.

    greenflute, last year one of my former students (now a friend) gave me Wicked as a thank-you gift. (He doesn't know that I don't read.) I haven't started it, of course. But let me know what you think of it.

    If you want flawed characters, Shayla, you should read The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. Great prose and really broken people. It's very moving.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Actually, I'll be out of town from Thursday the 10th until the 22nd. Is there any way we could make it a few days earlier? We should probably set an official date and time...

    I haven't read "The Lovely Bones", but I've been wanting to after hearing everyone talk about it here. I'm so excited! I've never been in a book club before. *off to find a copy*

    Excellent recommendation, Paulie. I thought that was a very original story.
